1. A Rollerball Perfume For Your Purse
These travel friendly tubes are perfect to have in your bag at all times. Just roll them over your skin to instantly feel fresh and smell great when you’re on the go. It’s much more convenient than lugging around a heavy perfume bottle with you everywhere you go.
What’s the best way to unwind after a tiring day? With a long, hot bath of course! Switch your usual quickie shower for a relaxing bath after a hectic day, or just when those period cramps are wrecking your life and you’re in need of some major TLC. A glorious bath and body set is amazing to have around for some fabulous smelling suds, indulgent body oils and super hydrating post-shower moisturizing.
A multi-purpose makeup palette is really smart to have around to help you play with and also to have your makeup all in one place, instead of scattered around your room and in numerous bags. Even if you’re a girl who doesn’t wear makeup too often, it’s smart to have a palette of shades that work well for you. You can get an eyeshadow palette, a lip palette, a contouring palette or a face palette (blush, bronzer, compact powder) – whatever you think you will use the most.
If you haven’t already, you definitely need to switch your hair products for gentler products that aren’t made with harsh chemicals. A sulfate-free shampoo is the way to go to help cleanse your strands gently, stop hair fall and for the general health of your mane. Going chemical-free is always a safer bet when it comes to your precious hair.
POPxo Loves: The newWella Elements Range is sulfate as well as paraben free for healthier, softer hair.
5. A Nail Care Set
Dry cuticles, chipped polish and hangnails are all common problems girls face. If you haven’t got the time or resources to get a professional manicure too often, you can care for your nails at home with a DIY nail care set. Read how to give yourself a manicure at home here. A nail polish set with a range of gorgeous shades or even a nail art kit is also a good idea.
Thanks to the hassles of daily life, sun exposure, pollution and stress, our skin doesn’t look as fantastic as we would like. In fact, it can look dull and age faster with the type of lifestyle us modern women lead. Who has the time to run to the parlour for clean-ups and facials every few weeks? Instead, you can try an at-home facial to help rejuvenate your skin and keep your complexion clear and radiant. It’s a great plan for all those nights in when you binge watch TV.
Makeup brushes are those miracle tools for flawless makeup application. They help you blend it all in seamlessly for that natural effect and are definitely worth every penny. If you haven’t got a perfect set of makeup brushes already, then we don’t know what you’re waiting for. It’ll take your makeup game to a whole new level. If all those brushes confuse you (learn about them here), then we would suggest investing in a beauty blender to help blend it all in – your concealer, your BB cream your foundation, everything! It’s an amazing tool to help blend across all the nooks and crannies of your face for a perfect, airbrushed finish.
